Like other smartphones, the Google Pixel phone’s lock screen also shows important information on the lock screen including the current time, date, and notification previews. And just like other leading Android devices like Samsung’s Galaxy flagship phones, Google’s latest Pixel phones are also capable of displaying additional lock screen information including your name and contact information.

If you’re new to this phone and wondering how to make your name and contact details appear on the Lock screen of your Pixel 7, just follow these steps to add text on the lock screen.

  1. First, launch the Settings app by tapping on the settings icon from the Home screen or Apps screen.



    Just look for the Gear icon on either screen then tap on it to get to the Settings app menu.

  2. In the Settings menu, scroll to find Display from the list of items then tap on it to proceed.



    Display-related settings and options will load up on the next screen.

  3. Navigate to the Lock display section then tap Lock screen.



    The Lock screen menu opens next. Here, you will see different options to manage lock screen actions and information.

  4. To continue, tap the option to Add text on lock screen under the What to show section.



    Doing so opens a pop-up window with a provided text field. 

  5. Enter or type in the text or message that you’d like to show on your lock screen.



    You can enter your name, custom message or alternative contact number that others can reach out to whenever they get a hold of your phone in case you misplace it. 

  6. After typing your lock screen text, tap Save.



    The lock screen text you’ve added recently will then be saved in the system and appear at the bottom part of your lock screen.

To change your lock screen text or add more details to it, just repeat the same steps to head back to the Lock screen menu then tap Add text on lock screen.  Once you get there, just type in the details that you’d like to put or add on your phone’s lock screen and then save it.

Benefits of Adding Text on your Lock Screen

Adding your name and contact information on your lock screen typically comes in handy whenever you accidentally lose or misplace your phone. This gives you a higher chance of getting your phone back, especially if an honest person finds it.

With your name and contact information shown on the lock screen, anyone who gets to find your device would be able to access and use that information without having to unlock your phone. The next thing you’d expect is a call from that person for the retrieval/return of your Google phone.

And that’s how you add text on the lock screen of your Google Pixel 7.
